Synopsis by Hal Erickson
PRC/Eagle-Lion's Eddie Dean western series came to an end with The Tioga Kid. Dean plays a dual role, as an upright Texas ranger and a desperate outlaw. The "bad" Dean joins a gang of horse rustlers who've been making life miserable for rancher Jennifer Holt. It's up to the "good" Dean to save Holt's stock and put the villains in the calaboose. Meanwhile, our hero's faithful sidekick Soapy (Roscoe Ates) is never quite sure which Eddie Dean he's speaking to at any given time. Considered a major improvement over Dean's previous films, The Tioga Kid is a worthy farewell for one of filmdom's most prolific but least memorable singing cowboy.
